Local Primary Schools in Killean, Meigh, Dromintee, Jonesborough and Cloughogue recently benefitted from a Cash for Schools Initiative run by Mulkerns SPAR & EUROSPAR.  To take part customers were issued with a voucher at the tills, which they then used to vote for their school in special voting boxes located in store.  The prize system was tiered, and every school was a winner, with each receiving a fantastic Cash Prize!

Kelly commented “The Directors and Management Team at Mulkerns wanted to do something to help the schools, who are working so hard to keep going in a very uncertain environment…with no increase in their budget.  I am humbled to be presenting them with these much-needed funds”.

Each of the schools had their own plans for the money, Dromintee had held a draw asking their children which books they would like to buy, some of the books have already arrived and some of the P5’s are proudly displaying them in the photograph.

A big thank you to all the parents who shopped and voted!  Look out for lots more Community Campaigns in store.
